Parenting tip of the day
Here's a school-lunch cheat you might like to copy on a hurried morning.
When I'm in a local bakery, I've been grabbing a stuffed croissant as an occasional sandwich boredom buster for my son in Grade One.
It's admittedly a bit of a treat because of the high fat content (though Cameron is so skinny he has a little 6-year-old six pack), but there's goat cheese, spinach and roasted red pepper inside. Pickier eaters might prefer ham and cheese, or even the variety stuffed with a sausage, which kind of makes it like a big, portable hot dog.
I've been picking these up about once a week. The cost is around $2.50.
What are your lunch-box secrets?
